Suspected Ebola patient now in isolation at Dallas Presbyterian Hospital


(NaturalNews) A patient suspected of harboring Ebola is now in isolation at the Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital in Dallas. According to breaking news reports, the patient is suspected of carrying Ebola because of his medical symptoms and travel history. This means the patient recently visited areas where Ebola has been actively circulating such as Sierra Leone, Liberia or Guinea.

A statement released by the hospital reads:

Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital Dallas has admitted a patient into strict isolation to be evaluated for potential Ebola Virus Disease (EVD) based on the patient's symptoms and recent travel history. The hospital is following all Centers for Disease Control and Texas Department of Heath recommendations to ensure the safety of patients, hospital staff, volunteers, physicians and visitors. The CDC anticipates preliminary results tomorrow.

CBS News has been covering the breaking story and reports speaking with a county HHS official: [1]

CBS 11 News spoke with Dallas County Health and Human Services Director Zachary Thompson who confirmed the patient had been in an area where the Ebola virus exists. "Looking at the travel history is the first indicator and then the next step is [treatment or non-treatment] once we get lab results," he said.

If Ebola appears in the USA, people will panic

Whether or not this patient turns out to have Ebola, the likelihood of Ebola making its way into the continental United States increases with each passing day that it spreads unabated across African nations.

I have publicly predicted the possibility of Ebola arriving in the United States and unleashing a public panic. This scenario was covered in detail in chapter 8 of my free online course Pandemic Preparedness found at www.BioDefense.com

In anticipation of an expected Ebola outbreak in the United States, the U.S. government has already ordered 160,000 hazmat suits, and the Governor of Kansas just declared October to be Zombie Preparedness Month in the hopes that the theme will nudge more Kansas citizens into taking action on preparedness.

Millions of people already under quarantine due to Ebola

Currently, two million residents of Sierra Leone are living under government quarantines, with food shortages already widely reported. If an Ebola outbreak begins to spread in the United States, there is little question that the federal government will declare and enforce quarantines of cities or even entire regions.

Once those quarantines go into place, routine deliveries of food and other supplies are likely to be sharply restricted or disrupted.

The question on everyone's mind right now is "If this patient in Dallas turned out to be carrying Ebola, did he infect anyone else?" And for how long was he able to mingle with other patients or medical staff before he was isolated?

In Africa, hospital staff were among the very first people infected. The continued, persistent spread of MRSA and other superbugs across U.S. hospitals proves that even first-world medical staff are unable to prevent the spread of infectious disease in their own hospitals.

The CDC has publicly predicted that if Ebola continues to spread on its current trajectory, an alarming 1.4 million patients may be infected by the end of January. That estimate assumed Ebola would remain restricted to a few African nations. It did not take into account the possibility of Ebola spreading to other continents, where hundreds of millions of more citizens might be at risk of exposure.

The incubation time for Ebola is 2 - 21 days, according to the CDC. This means a person can carry the virus for up to three weeks without showing any symptoms.

About the author:Mike Adams (aka the "Health Ranger") is a best selling author (#1 best selling science book on Amazon.com) and a globally recognized scientific researcher in clean foods. He serves as the founding editor of NaturalNews.com and the lab science director of an internationally accredited (ISO 17025) analytical laboratory known as CWC Labs. There, he was awarded a Certificate of Excellence for achieving extremely high accuracy in the analysis of toxic elements in unknown water samples using ICP-MS instrumentation. Adams is also highly proficient in running liquid chromatography, ion chromatography and mass spectrometry time-of-flight analytical instrumentation.

Adams is a person of color whose ancestors include Africans and Native American Indians. He's also of Native American heritage, which he credits as inspiring his "Health Ranger" passion for protecting life and nature against the destruction caused by chemicals, heavy metals and other forms of pollution.

Adams is the founder and publisher of the open source science journal Natural Science Journal, the author of numerous peer-reviewed science papers published by the journal, and the author of the world's first book that published ICP-MS heavy metals analysis results for foods, dietary supplements, pet food, spices and fast food. The book is entitled Food Forensics and is published by BenBella Books.

In his laboratory research, Adams has made numerous food safety breakthroughs such as revealing rice protein products imported from Asia to be contaminated with toxic heavy metals like lead, cadmium and tungsten. Adams was the first food science researcher to document high levels of tungsten in superfoods. He also discovered over 11 ppm lead in imported mangosteen powder, and led an industry-wide voluntary agreement to limit heavy metals in rice protein products.

In addition to his lab work, Adams is also the (non-paid) executive director of the non-profit Consumer Wellness Center (CWC), an organization that redirects 100% of its donations receipts to grant programs that teach children and women how to grow their own food or vastly improve their nutrition. Through the non-profit CWC, Adams also launched Nutrition Rescue, a program that donates essential vitamins to people in need. Click here to see some of the CWC success stories.

With a background in science and software technology, Adams is the original founder of the email newsletter technology company known as Arial Software. Using his technical experience combined with his love for natural health, Adams developed and deployed the content management system currently driving NaturalNews.com. He also engineered the high-level statistical algorithms that power SCIENCE.naturalnews.com, a massive research resource featuring over 10 million scientific studies.

Adams is well known for his incredibly popular consumer activism video blowing the lid on fake blueberries used throughout the food supply. He has also exposed "strange fibers" found in Chicken McNuggets, fake academic credentials of so-called health "gurus," dangerous "detox" products imported as battery acid and sold for oral consumption, fake acai berry scams, the California raw milk raids, the vaccine research fraud revealed by industry whistleblowers and many other topics.

Adams has also helped defend the rights of home gardeners and protect the medical freedom rights of parents. Adams is widely recognized to have made a remarkable global impact on issues like GMOs, vaccines, nutrition therapies, human consciousness.

In addition to his activism, Adams is an accomplished musician who has released over a dozen popular songs covering a variety of activism topics.
